America loves television. America loves television so much that last year there were 180 original scripted shows that aired on cable alone, not to mention the numerous programs offered by network broadcasters like ABC and CBS and all of the new original programs being put together by streaming outlets, including Netflix and Amazon. While cable and streaming shows have been receiving a lot of love from the awards ceremonies of late, apparently, the average American is still very much a fan of regular broadcasts.

A recent Harris Poll looked at 2,232 adults in different regions and age demographics and surveyed them in order to discover what the audiences' favorite TV shows are. After asking which shows people love the most, the survey found that there are 10 shows that easily beat out the others in terms of favorites. Unsurprisingly, most of these shows are big ratings bringers, too. Interestingly, however, many of the shows on this list run on one of the big networks. Find out which shows are the fan favorites, and why, below.

Criminal Minds
10. Criminal Minds
If there’s one thing I have learned about Criminal Minds during my time on this Earth, it is that the procedural has a lot of casual viewers as fans. So, while the ratings aren’t quite as high for the series as some of the top picks on this list, I’m not the least bit weirded out that Criminal Minds just cracked the Top 10. I have an inkling that a lot of casual viewers claim the show as a favorite, even if they only catch a few episodes a year. At least that’s how I’m guessing this show beat out some other fan favorites to make this list.
